My father owned a cream white one. We had the opportunity to drive along the Rhone river once, it was an incredible car. The backseat was made with a simple wood plate covered by plastic and I remember that It was really hot because the engine was in the rear side. We went for vacation in France and, one day, we parked under the Eiffel Tower. They were more people around our car than in the lift departure. A few years later, someone very rich came in a big limo and bought the car. He wanted to drive it and let the limo to his driver. Later we discovered that our amphicar was in a Museum. Great end for an amazing car.

Not that anybody asked but fun fact it was called the 770 because it went seven knots in water and 70 mph on land 馃槂
